Amicus Briefs

From time to time IIK will file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in cases which could have an impact on insurance law in Kentucky. We have developed a set of procedures for the filing of amicus curiae briefs in cases which merit IIK involvement and we have set aside funds for that purpose.

Members or othjer interested parties who would like to propose a case may do so by sending an application to us at

The application form and the memorandum outlining the policies and procedures for filing amicus briefs as approved by IIK membership are shown below:
